Dentures are an effective and popular treatment for missing teeth. These restorations can replace multiple missing teeth or all of the teeth in your mouth. Dentures can be secured with dental implants, attached to surrounding teeth, or held in place with a combination of suction and dental adhesive. In addition, dentures can be made with various materials, including acrylic, porcelain, and zirconia. With so many customizable options, the cost of dentures varies dramatically from patient to patient. In this blog post, Dr. Clark Damon of Texas Denture Clinic explains the factors that affect the costs of dentures. To learn more about dentures costs, contact our Fort Worth practice today. Dr. Damon will examine your oral health and provide you with dentures pricing options.
Factors that Affect the Cost of Dentures
There are a number of factors that affect the cost of dentures, including:
- Multiple vs. complete tooth replacement: The number of teeth that need to be replaced will affect the price of treatment. For example, a patient who requires a partial upper denture will typically pay less than a patient who requires complete upper and lower dentures.
- How the dentures are secured: Patients that have dentures supported by dental implants will pay more for the total cost of treatment. Dental implants are surgically implanted, an additional step that comes with additional fees. Dental implants offer improved stability for dentures. However, if you desire a lower cost treatment, or you are not a good candidate for dental implants, your dentures can be held in place by surrounding teeth or the use of suction and adhesives.
- Dentures materials: The dentures themselves can be made in a variety of materials. The higher the quality of the material, the more expensive the dentures will be. In terms of longevity and appearance, quality dentures will typically last longer than those made of less desirable materials.
- Design and fabrication: The design and fabrication of your veneers may also affect the price of treatment. At Texas Denture Clinic, we use digital imaging and 3-D CT XRAY to ensure that your dentures offer a precise fit, and that they look natural and beautiful. We have an in-house lab with skilled technicians that will craft your denture to the exact design specifications using durable materials. Because we have so much experience with dentures, we are able to keep even high quality dentures more affordable for our patients.
